toilet for small space


Hi all,

I moved into a new house a few months ago where the previous owner started framing out a bathroom in the basement. If you could imagine walking into the bathroom, to the left there is a finished wall that is about 20" past the door frame - that is where I would like the back of the toilet to go. Does anyone know of a toilet that can be mounted closer to the wall, or would "hug the wall" closer than a 10" rough? Worse case scenario I could move the door over a little, relocate the toilet, or create an alcove for the tank, but before doing so I figured I would explore other options. the toilet drain is not run yet so I do have lots of options, but if I could find say an 8" rough toilet (which I've never seen) I figure that might be the easiest and give me the nicest look.

Thank you!
